The perfect car for weekend racers, the Porsche 911 S always had a more sporty engine and race-worthy appeal when compared to the 911T and Porsche 911 E models it ran alongside. The 1972 Porsche 911 S model, as well as the 1973 model year, is often one of the most highly collected because it benefited from Porsche’s 2.4L engine and the popular long wheelbase body. Many consider it to be the final classic 911 before the 2.7L new engine was released.
Visually, the 2.4L 1972 Porsche 911 S received a new chin on the front valence that became standard on the S models and optional on the rest of the lineup. The 911 S models also had slightly larger Fuchs alloy wheels. Because the 911 S is considered highly collectible, prices for these 911s have risen over the past decade. If you’re looking for a 1972 Porsche 911 model S for sale in today’s classic car market, you’ll find everything from barn-finds in need of complete restoration to good quality everyday drivers, mint condition originals, and everything in between.
There are some benefits to purchasing a 1972 Porsche 911 S over other early Porsche 911 models. For example, the 1972 911S offers mechanical fuel injection, which is less prone to need repair when compared to the carbureted models. Secondly, the 1972 and 1973 models were the last of the classic 911s to offer the 2.4L engine. When you move to the 2.7L engine, you open a whole new can of worms. The 2.7L engines were prone to problems and many of the 2.7L 911 models saw a very short lifespan, with a great majority of them having rebuilt engines over the years. Another Buyer’s Tip to remember is that service history and interesting provenance add a lot of value to a 911 S, or any classic car. A lot of 911s have also been restored badly over the years; so if you find a virtually untouched 911 S, jump on it. These are just a few of the Buyer’s Tips that The Beverly Hills Car Club provides to their clients and are happy to share with you.
